About the Book

Baby sisters can be so annoying!

That’s what Max thinks. Max needs his daddy’s help—right now!—to bake a surprise Passover birthday cake for his mommy. But as baby Trudy fusses instead of napping, and Daddy tries to settle her down, their time to bake is slipping away.

With her warm and pithy storytelling, Michelle Edwards captures the moment in a child’s life when he realizes that he has the power to do things on his own.

  • Just found this site and always excited to learn about new reads for my Little Reader and I thank you. We are so nuts about reading, we are reading the entire children’s library. We like to cause a ruckus in the library on occasion!
